I weigh 150. I'm 5'4" and most of the time, I feel like I look okay.. But then I see pictures of myself and feel like a fatty mcfatfat. I started to lose weight, got down a few pant sizes.. Then found out I'm pregnant (which was planned so it's not bad news) I'm 12 weeks and haven't had the energy to work out like I was doing before baby. My question is.. Can I still go and work out, and still have results? I want to tone my arms soo bad. I have pregnancy yoga video's and can take my dog for a walk.. I know that exercise while pregnant will be good for me, which I plan on doing regardless of me slimming down, but I want to slim down also.
Can I still go and work out, and still have results?
You sure CAN!!! Working out while pregnant is good for you, your pregnancy, and your delivery.... Yes, you can still have results while you are pregnant and working out... Especially arms and butt. Just be careful of sciatica.. Don't up your weights... Just do more reps... don't do exercises that have you flat on your back after the first trimester) unless you consult your DR about a routine... I was able to run up to 1/2 way through my 8th month. Check with your Dr, but you don't need to eat many more calories while pregnant. So choose your meals wisely and work out and the best part? Your post-natal body will awesome!!! Good Luck!

You can definitely tone your arms and leg, even keep your torso strong, but weight loss during pregnancy is not healthy unless you are in the "obese" BMI category!!! Even then you don't loose, you pretty much stay the same or gain a bit. Tone, workout, but DO NOT expect to loose weight, it's not healthy!! Best thing is to talk to your OB/midwife about this!!
